Great Sound retired by trainer
Great Sound, the Bermuda Thoroughbred Racing horse, has retired because of injuries.
The decision was made by the horse’s trainer Richard Hughes, who has a stable in Lambourn, Berkshire. Great Sound was previously trained by John Gosden.
Simon Scupham, the BTR chairman, said: “Richard Hughes is second to none as a horseman and he really does truly care for the horses he trains.
“He has tried everything with our boy but he just can’t stay sound enough to handle training, never mind the racing.
“It’s a shame but we have to do the right thing. We will find him a great home so he can deservedly enjoy just being a horse.”
Great Sound shed his maiden tag in his first race at the Dribuild Stakes at Chepstow Racecourse in June last year.
Sent off as a 3-1 third favourite, the horse won the Class Five race for three-year-olds, which was held over eight furlongs, with a strong display of stamina.
He placed third in a Class Three contest at Salisbury, Wiltshire, later that month before his second win, a half-a-length victory at Newbury in August last year.
Queen Of Bermuda, who finished second in a Group three race at Chantilly, France, earlier this month, is scheduled to return in the Group three Firth of Clyde, a six-furlong Race, in Ayr, Scotland, on Saturday, September 22.
